Bosch introduced a new sun visor with artificial intelligenceJanuary 6, 2020
At the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, the German concern introduced several new products. The concept of the sun visor should change the idea of this part of the car, as well as provide a better overview in sunny weather.
Bosch’s virtual visor at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas blocks sunlight, giving the driver a virtually unobstructed view of the road. The technological visor has the same dimensions with the classic version, but it is a transparent LCD display with sections in the form of bee honeycombs.
Artificial intelligence technology analyzes the image from several cameras that constantly shoot the driver. This allows you to recognize facial features and position closed sections of the LCD panel in front of the eyes. Only a few sections on the panel are darkened to protect the driver’s eyes.
According to the manufacturer, such a visor will provide more safety on the road due to a better view of the windshield. “We are currently negotiating with OEMs (cars and commercial vehicles), and our goal is to bring new technology to the market,” said a Bosch spokesman.
Interestingly, Virtual Visor was coined by Bosch engineer Jason Zinc and two of his colleagues in their free time. The first prototype was assembled from a discarded LCD display. The leaders were so impressed with the prototype that they gave Zink and his team a budget to develop a serial product.
The start date of mass production, as well as the cost, remains unknown.
